Distinguished Professor Peter Corke
Peter has led robotics research at QUT since 2010 and was the founding director of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Robotic Vision, headquartered at QUT. His research is concerned with enabling robots to see so that they can be truly effective in non-factory applications such as agriculture, environmental monitoring, asset inspection and mining.
Professor Michael Milford
Deputy Director, QUT Centre for Robotics
Michael conducts interdisciplinary research at the boundary between robotics, neuroscience and computer vision and is a multi-award winning educational entrepreneur. His research models the neural mechanisms in the brain underlying tasks like navigation and perception to develop new technologies in challenging application domains such as all-weather, anytime positioning for autonomous vehicles.
Professor Jason Ford
Jason has more than 20 years of experience developing decision and control solutions for energy, aerospace and defence industries. His research concerns how to create robotic and autonomous systems that can reliably operate in the presence of uncertainty and error.
Associate Professor Niko Suenderhauf
Niko conducts research at the intersection of robotics, computer vision, and machine learning. His work focuses on robotic scene understanding, localisation, mapping, and task learning. Niko leads the centre's Visual Learning and Understanding Program. He received an Amazon Research Award in 2020 and a Google Faculty Research Award in 2018.
Associate Professor Felipe Gonzalez
Felipe has more than 20 years of experience developing drones for remote sensing. His research focuses on creating aerial robots, drones or UAVs that possess a high level of cognition using efficient on-board computer algorithms and advanced optimisation approaches. Felipe leads the Airborne Systems Lab and is co-lead for Perception and Localisation research program at the Centre for Robotics. He has received five innovation awards and leads several ARC and Microsoft AI for Earth grant projects.
